Nice view of an historical structure. This is mile point 0 for the Panamanian highway. Tomorrow we will drive over this structure on our way to west Panama.

Took a cab ride and went on the Bridge of American. Nice but a lot of traffic just like anywhere else in Panama. It was a wonderful site and had a great view. Happy I stopped and took a moment to enjoy the view.

It's a very important structure in this part, bridging over the Pacific entrance of the Panama Canal. It connects the country to other countries in Latin and South America and to North America. We went over the bridge on our tour bus and also under it on a boat.

Be sure to drive over the bridge that separates north america from south america over the canal. The traffic is quick moving and take lots of pictures.
